Emily, n nI'm sorry I haven't gotten back to you. There has been something wrong with my email account and I didn't notice until I went to check to see if anyone emailed me about my order because it hadn't come in yet. I'm actually buying this as a birthday present so I had to figure out what to do. Unfortunately the small will be too small so I guess the medium in the Rambars would be my next option. If you could possibly let me know the approximate amount of time it would take for the shipping that would be great. n nThanks, nLaura

Natty Paint is the product of years of painting and fine arts training, combined with my interests in fashion and the music world. I started painting on clothing with puffy paints and spray paints in high school, and continued throughout college. The first official Natty Paint shirt was created in December 2008 as a Christmas gift for my roommate. It was a sweatshirt handpainted with puffy paints, based off a collage I had pasted together from various magazines and design books, and then projected onto the back of the sweatshirt.

Many people have asked me what the name Natty Paint means. Since I’m currently working in Baltimore, I felt I needed to somehow incorporate that. National Bohemian, fondly nicknamed Natty Boh, is a beer that is from Baltimore, but also it just happens that “natty” means fashionable. The “paint” is a bit more obvious, since the designs are painted on with fabric paint. The paint is plastic and water based,and once dry, is heat set into the fabric in order to ensure the design doesn’t fade or flake off.

I find the most unique results to be a combination of silkscreening and handpainting. Sometimes I add rhinestones and sew bits of fabric into the image. My designs are bright and in your face. There’s nothing subtle about them. They’re meant to make a statement. An art statement.
